the first blogger whose turf includes Silver Lake to notice that the wonderful Bellevue Park is once again open to the public. Closed since 2004, the park won a grant of $1.7 million in voter-approved Prop K for Kids funds to restore its irrigation system and improve drainage on the fields. We were also able to improve the jogging path and light the park safely and effectively. I joined Mayor Villaraigosa for a grand re-opening and got to throw out the first pitch of the Little League game. Click on the picture at right to see a few more Bellevue shots on my flickr page.
